Art of Fighting was also the first FightingGame to feature powered-up special moves. The ''[[FinishingMove Super Death Blow]]'' featured in the first two games is a move done when the spirit/rage gauge is full, but must be learned in a BonusStage that appears throughout the games. The ''Hidden Death Blow'', seen in all three games, is a move that can only be done if the spirit gauge is full and the player's life bar is very low and flashing red.

red]].



The second Art of Fighting takes place a year later. Geese Howard of ''VideoGame/FatalFury'' fame is seen as Southtown's police commissioner. He uses his position as a front for him being a major force in Southtown's criminal underworld, and was directly responsible for Mr. Big kidnapping Yuri. He creates the first ''[[VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters King of Fighters]]'' fighting tournament, in which all the fighters from the first game enter, except for Ryuhaku Todoh, who is beaten so badly, he goes into self-imposed exile to train. In addition to Geese, three new characters are also introduced, including last game's DamselInDistress, Yuri. Ryo discovers what Geese had done and defeats him in battle, but Geese escapes and hides out in Japan for a time. Unlike the first game, most of the game's characters are playable in story mode. Mr. Big and Ryo and Yuri's father, Takuma, who were bosses in the last game, are playable characters in this installment. Geese is only playable without hacking or playing with dipswitches in the Japan-only [[SuperNintendoEntertainmentSystem Super Famicom]] version of the game.

* {{Expy}}: Takuma seems to be based on the unnamed Player 1 character from ''Street Smart''. Ryuhaku Todoh looks like a mook from the first VideoGame/StreetsOfRage game.

* DenserAndWackier: Disregarding the GagDub of AOF 2, Team Kyokugen progressively became this with every passing year in VideoGame/TheKingOfFighters where they (sans Garcia) are portrayed as a bunch of penniless ButtMonkey losers. Many of their endings also involve Ryo and Robert pulling off rubbery {{Gonk}} faces, after getting stuck in some zany situation or another.

** Canonically, Ryo did this too. He was outright talentless at Karate first, but when his mother died and Takuma disappeared, he devoted his life to protect Yuri.
